Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946 in New York, said that if he is re-elected as head of state, he will send thousands of troops currently stationed abroad to the border with Mexico.
Trump told supporters at an event in Iowa that will cast the first vote in January for the Republican nomination for the U.S. presidential election, which will be held in November next year.
Trump described the wave of illegal immigrants crossing Mexico's border with the United States as an "invasion" and blamed the government of current President Joe Biden.
"Once I take office, I will immediately roll back all open borders policies of the Joe Biden administration," Trump said at the event in Dubuque. "I will make it clear that we will use all necessary resources to stop the invasion, including the transfer of thousands of troops currently stationed abroad," he said.
Biden's government says it is using all available tools to crack down on illegal immigration and has called on Congress to pass legislative measures to address the system's problems.
